"Some Perfect Curtains Vol. 2" is an intriguing compilation, arose from an idea by the Artist Marco Lucchi, which takes the listeners through several zones of sound, all along the way cleaving just enough to an abstract definition of ambient, musique concrete and generically experimental music, without being immovably adhered to it. Marco Lucchi himself perfectly defines this compilatios as "A pataphysical journey, a collection of 'ending tracks' for 'imaginary albums' ... looking for the 'perfect curtain' .. (it must have an ending/not-ending touch/feeling, it must close the album, but also open to others to come ... it must induce the listener to go further on, it must enhance the imagination)"
All the involved Artists center their work in that same gracefully deliberate delivery of each note, the sense of airy sparseness that manifests in keeping a respectful if not meditative distance from one note to another. It can be played at an innocuous volume and still retain its strong emotional force, and reveals in close and focused listens an amazing amount of depth and small-sound detail.
As a background listen, the pervasive calm – even in the darker or nervous spots – works its way into you, and there are points that just make you need to stop and be in that moment. It has a poetically surrealistic aura that is slowly, and beautifully, meted out.
